    Current policy is to start orientation on the first Monday or Tuesday (if a very small orientation class) after the start of a new pay period.

    If orientation is not scheduled on May 29th and pushed to June instead it may be due to the HR manager, safety manager, and/or GTM being unavailable that week.

    Monroe doesn't just run Atlanta. You may leave out with your first load and be gone all week. Swift handles alot of monroes freight and are in and out a lot there. They could send you out with your first load and when you got empty with it. You could go anywhere. Walmart also has a center point (aka break bulk) off Moreland avenue south atl. I've picked up loads out of there that went along ways to other DC's

    Yeah they only have 2 people on the 15th so far and said they are hoping I will be the 3rd.

    That's good to hear. So in other words it doesn't matter what DC I run out of and I should just transfer closer to home as soon as possible after the 1st year?

    Wow that's huge congrats in advance. Any fresh advice since u were in my position not too long ago?

    Congrats and welcome to the slowest job in trucking. Hope you have a good collection of reading material because if you enjoy sitting at a dc for a day or more with no pay this is the place for you.

    And to all you guys wanting to come to work over here. If you are not good backing and working in tight spaces this isn't the place for you
